Loddon Valley Link



Welcome to the October edition of the Loddon Valley Link.

The Coronavirus lockdown isn't tapering off as fast as we hoped but our intrepid volunteer deliverers are continuing with their mission.

Autumn is happening as I write this with the clocks going back later this month although you wouldn’t think so given the lovely weather. This has obviously prompted a lot of you to get out with your cameras. The results of the LVL cover photo competition can be seen on the centre pages. No prizes this year but just knowing you’ve won is enough. 

Sherfield and District show went online this year with great success. There is a flavour of some of the entries on p20  you can still see all the entries online.

We’ve got contributions from our MP on p16 and borough councillor Nick Robinson on p22. Plus our Hampshire County Councillor on p28.

The Loddon Valley Link is giving out money again in the form of grants to local organisations. We have the successful applicants on p15.oct20 contents

The Vyne National Trust has opened its beautiful gardens on p6.

Technology is catching up with the church and Sheena Archer has donated a lovely contactless giving plate on p11

This month’s colourful cover is from Jane Farrow (with thanks to Dan).

All that and the villages are slowly getting back to whatever the new normal will be. The Village Hall has news on p12 as does Sherfield Park Community Centre on p13.

Don’t forget to check out the back page as Sherfield Village Hall need to raise money.

We’re still looking for another editor to join our team. It’s a very rewarding job collating and publishing all the activities in our area.  As you can see from this edition it takes no special skills so please get in touch if you can donate a few days of your time per year.

PS. The answer to the crossword is corrected in the online edition.

Latest Magazine

A few readers have reported getting reports from their virus checker that the magazine download contains a potential virus. This is actually a false positive as we ensure the magazine is checked before publishing but its caused by the various clickable links to websites in the online version of the magazine. However we have stripped out a lot of the backgrond information so hopefully this won't be an issue going forward. Download the October 2020 edition
